Here's a simply written column by the well-respected scientist, Dr. Francis Collins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Collins, http://www.genome.gov/10000779). He discusses how he landed at the intersection of Science and Faith. Read it here.
A few excerpts:
"Challenged by one of those patients, who asked "What do you believe, doctor?", I began searching for answers. I had to admit that the science I loved so much was powerless to answer questions such as "What is the meaning of life?" "Why am I here?" "Why does mathematics work, anyway?" "If the universe had a beginning, who created it?" "Why are the physical constants in the universe so finely tuned to allow the possibility of complex life forms?" "Why do humans have a moral sense?" "What happens after we die?"
"By investigating God's majestic and awesome creation, science can actually be a means of worship."
